The largest port in Bangladesh, the Karnaphuli River is chock full of fishing boats and major cargo vessels. The river and the riverbank are extraordinarily polluted and smelly. But the buzz and hive of activity are fascinating. Fisherman all up and down the riverbanks mend their nets. Hold your breath, but do visit.

Evening cruise on private motor boat. Many commuters cross the river in the mornings and back in the evenings after work. Many large ships anchored in the river.

Karnaphuli river originates from Saith village of Mamith district, Mizoram, India. I passes through hills moves through locality finally falls in told Bay of Bengal.it is 270 KM long. In 1960 a hydro electric project was built at Kaptai. The biggest river port Chittagong located few KMshort of estuary.There are two bridges one Kalurghat railway and track bridge, built during British Raj.The second one is Shahamanot bridge. On the Northern bank main Town of Chittagong located.There are also some important installations like Naval Base, Dry Dock, refinery,and Airport located in close proximity of the river.In good weather people visits naval Academy site for recreation.Lion share of export and import are done through this river.That's why it is called life line of our country.

Big river of chattagram, runs through the city. About half a kilometer in width, the bridge over it. If we are going south of Chittagong we need to cross it. I had to, since I was going to Cox's Bazar. The river looks dirty towards the banks on both the sides.

Karnaphuli is a 667-metre (2,188 ft) wide, and the largest and most important river in Chittagong and the Chittagong Hill Tracts. Comes from the Saitah village of Mamit district in Mizoram, India. Chittagong is situated on the banks of the Karnaphuli River between the Chittagong Hill Tracts and the Bay of Bengal.

This is the main river in the town. Specially people who are mariner and work in ships,lives in this river. This river is full of current .. it is very risky to swim. If any one fall in the river there is risk of life.

Chittagong city do not provide much attraction for general tourist. This is indeed the business district of central Bangladesh. However, the only attraction to visit during your stay in Chittagong is the Karnafuli river. It is buzzing with life and vigour. We took a rickshaw all the way to Karnafuli ferry ghat; a not so impressive place to venture out for general tourist. This is the life line of the people of Chittagong.we hires a boat for 500 BDT to take us to Karnafuli bridge and back. The river cruise on a non-fancy boat was ultimately exciting and fun-filled. This was beyond our expectations. The river is dotted with boats and vessels of all sizes; from tiny fishing boats to huge oil tankers, there were busy ferry carrying daily passengers to idle and redundant boats waiting for their turn to decommission. Ours was an ideal day for a boat ride this January – a bright sunny day with crisp cool breeze. We ended our journey at the Ferringi Ghat and wished our journey had never ended.

I always like this marine drive towards the patenga beach besides the Karnafully river. You can travel up to the mouth of the river.Lot of coastal vessel are anchored at the mounth. If you are lucky you can see ships entering & departing the harbour. Plenty of shops around for fooding or souvinior.
